Debris on Katy Freeway causes big problems for drivers

Debris scattered across the Katy Freeway left half a dozen drivers changing at least one flat tire on their cars. Police say it started when a car missed the exit ramp and slammed into a metal guard rail near Washington late last night. The driver ran away, abandoning a female passenger who suffered minor injuries.

Wood and metal from the smashed guard rail spilled across the main lanes and punctured the tires of at least six vehicles.
